22 December 2023: 2024 Vermont Presidential Candidate Information from the Vermont Secretary of State.


   

This Presidential Primary coincides with a state/local primary. These coinciding primaries tend to have an impact upon voter turnout.

There is no party registration in Vermont. After marking their ballot, a voter presents the ballot to election clerks, publicly declaring the party they are submitting. This declaration becomes part of the public record.

Tuesday 5 March 2024: Vermont Primary. Hours 5:00a-7:00p EST (1000-0000 UTC). Polls may open as early as 5:00a and no later than 10:00a as set by the Board of Civil Authority. Delegate Binding: Winner-Take-Most Primary. Voter Eligibility: Open Primary.

All 17 of Vermont's delegates to the Republican National Convention are bound to presidential contenders in today's Presidential Primary. [Rules of the Vermont Republican State Committee, Rule 12. i.]

  • If one candidate receives 50% or more of the statewide vote, that candidate receives all 17 delegates.
  • Otherwise, the statewide delegates are proportionally bound to those candidates receiving at least 20% of the statewide vote. If no candidate receives 20%, the threshold is 15%. If no candidate receives 15%, the threshold is 10%.
  • Fractional delegates will be rounded to the nearest whole number. If rounding results in too many delegates (more than 17), the excess delegates will be subtracted from the candidate who received the fewest votes of all candidates entitled to delegates. If rounding results in too few delegates (less than 17), the additional delegates will be added to the candidate who received the most votes.
